New, comments

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV – None. Radio- None. Internet Stream – The Islanders' Website

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (1-1-0) vs. the New York Islanders (0-1-0).

The Previews: My preview of the game and some things I am looking for tonight are here. Dominik from Lighthousehockey.com has the preview for the only true home game the Islanders have this season.

Gameday Info:

Arthur Staples of Newsday posted the projected Islanders lineup for tonight:

Forwards

1: Matt Moulson-John Tavares-Nino Niederreiter 2: Kyle Okposo-Frans Nielsen-Michael Grabner

3:Jay Pandolfo-Ryan Strome-Tim Wallace 4: Matt Martin-Josh Bailey-Trevor Gillies

Defensemen

1: Mark Streit-Steve Staios 2: Mark Eaton-Milan Jurcina 3: Aaron Ness-Travis Hamonic

Starting Goalie: Al Montoya

The Devils roster was shortened significantly during the afternoon with 14 players sent to Albany of the AHL and 5 returned to their Major Junior teams. The Devils press release with the names of all those players is here.

Tom Gulitti tweeted out the Devils prospective lineup in two tweets about a half hour ago here and here. And we already knew that Johan 'Moose' Hedberg was starting in the net tonight. The Devils lineup as tweeted by Gulitti:

Forwards:

1: Parise-Elias-Clarkson 2:Tedenby-Henrique-Palmieri 3: Veilleux-Steckel-Bernier

4: Zharkov-Pelley-Janssen

Defense:

1: Tallinder-Fayne 2: Fraser-Stralman 3: Taormina-Corrente

The only noticable absence is Peter Harrold from the defensive unit. Beyond that, nothing about the above is that surprising.

Because I can't say it any better myself:

Please use the comments to discuss the game before, during, and a little after the game itself. While the result ultimately means nothing, but please cheer on the team all the same. Keep the rules in mind when you do comment: keep it clean, keep it relevant, and keep it legal (read: no illegal streams - do not talk about them, do not request them and do not provide them here). Above all: Go Devils!
